Happy Saturday! It’s been a while since I updated you with my weekend loves, huh? I’ve been so busy the past few weeks I haven’t had much time to purposelessly browse the internet so there weren’t many new discoveries to share, really. You know, in the spirit of not forcing it and everything… But today I’m back with some new interesting links and favourites for you! Let’s take a look.
Ohhh yes, linguistics at its best! As you may know I studied Celtic Languages and Culture, but I was always more into the “culture” part of that and will honestly say I developed a kind of aversion against linguistics over the years, and avoided linguistical courses at all costs. Now this however, this brings me a lot of joy. The guy, who is a linguist and dialect coach, talks about a few well-known constructed languages from popular works of fiction. He talks about their characteristics, some unique sounds they contain, what natural languages they’re similar to… And it’s all presented in a very fun and interesting way. He discusses Sindarin, Klingon, Parseltongue, Dothraki and High Valyrian, amongst others. Really worth a watch if you’ve got a few minutes to spare!
